Welcome to the Bee! you will find tons of ladies here who are great supporters on the waiting boards! i hope they can chime in as i found weddingbee after getting engaged so i never made it to the waiting boards.

Sounds like you guys are on the right track though!

My husband’s family sounds like your SO’s – very non emotional – where my family is the complete opposite. I think i make them uncomfortable with my hugs haha but hey they are family so they get to live with it 🙂

I just thought “waiting” meant you weren’t engaged. I’m sure it means different things to different people. Anyway, welcome!

A bit like you really.  We’d talked about it a lot.  But I classed myself as “officially waiting” when he asked my Dad’s permission. Silly ol’ Dad let it slip to me and I’ve been waiting ever since. 🙂

@redheadem:i think of waiting as someone who is expecting to be engaged soon.  i’m not engaged yet and i’m not waiting.  i know when we are ready, my bf and i will be engaged.  i hate people asking when my bf will propose as if he’s the only one who’s in charge of deciding when!
